I wouldn't call that a little less polite. :lol:

I looked it up - 5cm is 2" - and that's way too big for me since I'm a towering 5'5"

I tend to go 1.5" or 1.75" at max, but even then it gets to be a bit much. I dont have any suits with cuffs, only odd trous. Not sure which way I'll go with the next suit.

 

If anything, suits should be cuffed and odd trousers uncuffed...but imo everything should be cuffed...uncuffed looks sloppy and unrefined. 

 

Based on your height you could go a little less than 2in cuffs. 1 3/4 is classic.

I think those shoes are nice with that suit, but maybe not with an other tie.

I think the shoes look great with the suit.

Except they don't. 

 

A solid navy suit is deserving of black, dark brown, or oxblood and nothing else. And not brogues. Oxfords. 

 

Brogues in that fit are already a huge stretch...add that they are tan...and it is a fail. 

 

Chalk it up to a learning experience and move on.

The jacket is too slim at the waist and the shoulders look bad. I think you need to start tapering your trousers.

I generally dislike tan shoes with navy suits, but I think that the tie ties everything together. Without the tie, I wouldn't have liked it.

PCK1 may have a point about the brogueing though. On a darker shoe, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

Um. Thank you? Also, What does "the shoulders look bad" mean? How? Too bug? Too small? Too rumply?

For what it's worth, he is referring to himself as his "friend"

This was exactly my impression.

 

Cheers,

BING!

 

You are incredibly consistent, Victor.


 I think your look is absolutely fabulous. But personal preference...I'd button the 4th button on the jacket sleeve. Yes, I know it's bespoke, but it tries a bit too hard, shouting "look at me, working button holes."
